The Educational Supervisor: I have been at the practice since 2006. After successfully completing my FD training in the Northampton scheme. The development of my practice includes being an ES for the last ten years.
I have successfully completed the Implants course with GIFT at Warwick University. I have a wide ranging patient base allowing me to focus on both private and NHS treatments.
My interests are Implants and restorative treatments and I have a certification from GC Europe Institute, Belgium, which specialized in Gradia and aesthetic restorations. I recently completed a hands on Implant course and gained my FICOI from the USA.
I have gained my Pg Cert Ed and I am also a member of AoME ( Academy of Medical Educators).
I am keen to expand my business through the acquisition of further dental practices.
Outside of dentistry, I am married and have two small children, a girl and a boy. I enjoy eating out, watching sports, traveling and spending time with friends and family.

Other Points of Interest:
The practice is a large Edwardian house over four floors ( one is the basement) and looks out over the fields to the famous Cassiobury Park. As many of our patients stem back two, three and four generations we like to encourage a good sense of humor with all patients whilst still maintaining our professionalism and attaining our high level of clinical governance standards and a comfortable surrounding for the patients dental journey. We achieved The BDA Good Practice and utilize all skills to not only meet patients expectations but exceed them.
We work closely with the local referral centres and have built up a great working relationship with them.
The practice openly encourages trainees nurses and we have successfully supported the last ten nurses to complete and pass their exams of which one nurse is now in the completion of her dental hygiene training.
